A vegetable company in San Francisco has & # 39; liquid eggs & # 39; developed with mung bean protein, rapeseed oil, onion puree and turmeric.

The mixture is made by a heating and cooling process that produces a liquid with the same amount of protein as a real egg, but without cholesterol.

And now the company has redesigned the egg like never before.

HOW IS IT MADE?

To develop these vegetable eggs, the company carries the beans through a grinding process and then separates the protein in powder form, which is then added to a mixer.

Canola oil, onion puree and turmeric are then added to the powder.

And finally, the mixture is heated and then cooled in the final phase before bottling and distribution.

Three tablespoons of liquid is equal to one whole egg and the two are similar in protein content – JUST eggs have 5.6 grams versus the 6.3 grams in a real egg.

After intensive research, the company chose the mung bean protein because it turned out to boil to a gel-like texture in a pan.

JUST Egg contains 5 g vegetable protein per portion (comparable chicken egg content for the same volume) and is free from cholesterol and saturated fat and artificial flavors.

Creating favorite dishes from plants has become a growing trend worldwide – especially the popular Impossible Burger.

This meatless hamburger can be found in certain restaurants and has recently found its way to supermarkets.

The pie is made with soy protein, coconut oil, potato protein and sunflower oil.

It also contains heme, a plant-based ingredient that, according to the company, the citizen tastes of meat & # 39 ;.

The hamburger itself is vegan, but extra fillings added by restaurants may not be.

An impossible hamburger is also known for its realistic ability to bleed & # 39; which makes it strongly resemble meat.

Impossible Foods, which makes the product, changed the recipe in January 2019.

The new Impossible Burger contains 30% less sodium and 40% less saturated fat.

It contains as many proteins as 80/20 ground beef from cows.

Before the ingredients were changed, the Impossible Burger contained 70% of the daily recommended intake of saturated fat.

Impossible Foods was founded in 2011 by Doctor Patrick O. Brown.

The Impossible Burger was released in 2016.

The website says the company searched the planet for plant-based ingredients that resemble meat, but that would be better for both humans and the planet.

Impossible is not the only company that has difficulty meeting the burning demand for vegetable meat.

According to research by Nielsen, American sales of meat alternatives have grown by an average of 8 percent per year in the last five years.

Meat sales were stable in the same period.

The successful IPO of Impossible & # 39; s rival Beyond Meat, a Californian vegetable burger and sausage maker, has further sparked the interest of consumers and investors.

The share price of Beyond Meat has risen almost 700 percent since the May debut on the Nasdaq.

Beyond Meat was faced with shortages during 2017 and 2018.

It responded by increasing the capacity at its production facility in Missouri, but also by working together.

In May, it signed an agreement with Zandbergen World & # 39; s Finest Meat to produce Beyond Meat products in the Netherlands.

Rebellyous Foods, a startup in Seattle that makes vegetable clogs, has signed a contract with meat companies pending the opening of its own production facility in October.

Some say that production binders are crucial for vegetable meat companies to bring products to market faster, especially as large manufacturers such as Tyson Foods are preparing to enter the market.

& # 39; Once product quality and branding have been introduced, I think the most important thing for these companies is to gain market share as quickly as possible, & # 39; said Nick Cooney, managing partner of Lever VC, a venture capital company in New York that invests in vegetable meat companies.
